Location: right in the center, close to the great museums, right along a canal, super close to outstanding public transportation... Great service: the concierges and desk staff were particularly helpful, had great suggestions, solved little problems, sought answers to puzzling questions. As for breakfast: a feast every morning: either traditional American with eggs, pancakes, etc, and superb bakery goods, including... More

This hotel is a little long in the tooth and could use updating all over. Our first impression was underwhelming. This review has pluses and minuses. The hotel facility is really more like a 3 star...a bit dated, a simple unadorned lobby, little staircases everywhere, dark hallways, etc. The quality of the staff is superb, better than we have experienced...

The hotel is clean, very comfortable and the staff in all positions could not be more friendly, efficient and helpful. The principal drawback is the fountain on the street outside where youthful visitors to the city carry on their revelries to the early hours. I would recommend the hotel but with the proviso that you request a room at the... More

We arrived early, but the front desk upgraded our room so that we could check in early. The concierge was really helpful and recommend Brunch restaurants locally, and gave us a map and pin pointed tourist attractions. The room was spacious, and although a little dark, it was okay as we were out all day anyway. The bed was big... More

The American is A WONDERFUL HOTEL, the staff are great and unobstrusive, the room we had 317 was fantastic with views of the square and of the canal. The hotel is situated minutes from bars and cafes, and a short walk to the museums, it is the best hotel in Amsterdam (and I have stayed in many). the cocktails are... More

I think this hotel gets worse with age. I have stayed here countless times in the past but have stayed away the last couple of years. The plus points are the service and the bar. The negatives are the very small rooms, very loud rooms and slightly dank smell in the common areas. The free wifi is also pretty slow... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your visit and your review posting. We are sorry to hear that you experienced an unpleasant odeur somewhere in the hotel. We shall investigate this to prevent it from happening again. Indeed some rooms are rather compact and the wooden floors of the 113-year old hotel can creak a little every now and then. Our... More

The exterior promises something the interior can't live up to I'm afraid. It's a wonderful building spoilt by an unsympathetic redo (looks 70's but could be anytime). That said it's very comfortable, Our room was very large and overlooked the canal, staff were most helpful, the barman knew how to mix good Old Fashioned and the restaurant is a thing... More

Pros: Great Location, Great Service, Fantastic Space Cons: Pricey The American Cafe at the Hampshire is a great place to meet for lunch and watch what is going on on the Leidseplein. The large windows give an excellent view and the space itself is worth a visit. It has a luxurious interior with high arched ceilings and an art deco... More

Good hotel with friendly staff. The location was great and close to shopping and museums (and all kinds of public transportation). However the rooms were a bit on the smaller side. Would stay here again!
